Working on both Twelfth Night and Ferdinand the Bull at the same time has proved to be an interesting, tiring, and enjoyable task. Some people might think that acting in a Children’s play is easy work but it is just as hard and tiring as Shakespeare…if not harder. My approach to playing Cochina the Pig was to add a playfulness to her. Drew Archer, the Director, also wanted me to make her speech patterns quick, loud and intense. I think Cochina is always thinking about the next great thing she can do or be involved in. She is a very self involved pig who is very determined to get her big pig break. Because of this she is always on the go, in movement and mind. A lot of Cochina’s movement is quick and bouncy. It was a lot of fun to experiment with her physicality. I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Conchina is a very fun and silly role to play. I can’t wait for you to meet her and the rest of the cast!
